Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab Pop

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab Pop 2Clinique has really had the beauty world abuzz lately with a whole slew of new shades for their gorgeous Cheek Pops along with a brand new lip product launch, the Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer. It promises to be a rich pigmented lipstick combined with a smoothing primer, and there are 16 difference shades including the Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab Pop*.

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab PopThe colour-coordinated packaging is quite cute on all the lipsticks, and Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab Pop is a bright baby pink shade. It is definitely white-based, and unfortunately the colour does not apply as evenly as many of the darker shades seem to based on the reviews I’ve seen. It actually reminds me of a hilariously similarly named lipstick I reviewed recently, the Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom in Hibiscus Pop.

1-Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab Pop CollageCompared to the Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipsticks which I adore, the Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab Pop has a more slippery, more moisturizing formula. It does glide around a bit on the lips and I think that is part of what makes it appear uneven. I do find that when I press my lips together while wearing it I can get visible “lines” which is not an attractive look.

In terms of lasting power, it is not at all transfer proof and only lasts a few hours on me, so I’m not sure how effective the “primer” is in this particular shade.

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab Pop 4Unfortunately to top it all off, I think Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab Pop is not at all an attractive shade on me, so I might have been willing to cut it a little more slack if it was.

Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab Pop 3Unfortunately, my overall experience with Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Fab Pop is quite negative, but it hasn’t deterred me from some of the other shades, which I think are much nicer. The white-base and baby pink shade is a little tricky, and I don’t think it is successful this time, but shades like Plum Pop look absolutely stunning so I really want to try one to compare.
